What is BUMMP?
Boulder United Methodist Mission Partners (BUMMP) is a partnership formed in 1976 of over 16 nearby United Methodist Churches, which organizes and promotes mission projects at local, regional, national and international locations. The BUMMP Committee meets monthly and continues mission project planning between activities. If you would like to participate in some capacity, please let us know since we are always planning new activities. Active volunteer planners, workers, and leaders are welcome from all area UMC’s. If you would like additional information about BUMMP, please contact Reverend Merlene Barner at mbarner44 [at] centurylink [dot] net.
Boulder United Methodist Mission Partners has filed Articles of Incorporation with the
Colorado Secretary of State and will henceforth be known as BUMMP, Inc. Application is being made to IRS for non-profit status under 501c3. It is the expectation of existing BUMMP members that this action will help BUMMP to improve in many ways including: a) facilitate expanded fund raising activity to raise funds for future mission projects in excess of the few annual projects now sponsored. Sustainable funding for selected projects may be considered. Also, BUMMP, Inc. may consider sponsoring more medical mission teams, water purification projects, and will continue to sponsor construction and disaster relief projects; b) provide a structured organization which will enable BUMMP, Inc. to involve more volunteers from local churches in BUMMP missions and planning. It is our hope that the new corporation will be structured so that BUMMP can become more closely related to the local churches that support us.
